Interior & comfort Rating

3.1 out of 5

The Megane Coupe is generally quite comfortable to ride in – but you do feel more jolts and vibrations than in the standard five-door hatchback thanks to stiffer suspension – and the springs are even firmer on the GT 220. Wind noise is an issue at motorway speeds and the poor insulation may frustrate drivers on long motorway cruises.

Renault Megane Coupe dashboard

You’d be forgiven for thinking the Megane’s dashboard and centre console are a little plain compared to the stylish layouts seen in the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra GTC and even German models like the Volkswagen Scirocco. Overall, build quality has been vastly improved compared to Renaults of old, but the overall design is starting to feel a little dated due to a lack of updates since the car’s initial introduction in 2009.

Equipment

One major plus is that the tired dashboard does at least play host to lots of standard equipment, no matter which model you go for. All Megane Coupes are well equipped with a range of accessories, including air-conditioning and TomTom sat nav. The plusher models replace the manual air-conditioning with climate control.

If you choose the sporty GT 220, it is treated to a sporty bodykit, carbon-fibre detailing, sports seats and lots of ‘GT’ badges so passing pedestrians know exactly what model you’ve chosen.

Options

The Megane Coupe is available with several option packs. The Styling Pack adds a ‘carbon-look’ roof, along with front and side skirts. The Protection Pack throws in all-round parking sensors and a boot liner. Other options include integrated DAB digital radio, a FOCAL music system and a range of alloy-wheel designs.
